Giveaway with The Little Leaf - Closed


Today I pleased to introduce you Alana from The Little Leaf Etsy shop. Her illustrations consist mostly by watercolor prints -floral & patterned-, some doodle style pieces and, from now on, little birdies too. Alana is a talented young lady and I encourage you to take a look at her blog too, for more behind the scenes info and some almost-alive photography right from the marvelous Australia. 

There will be 2 prints for two lucky readers, so good luck everyone! :)


Déspina Kortesidou

Déspina Kortesidou was born with the April flowers sometime in the '90s in the sunny peninsula of Greece. She is a graduating master student of neuroscience & metabolism, and a born adventurer.

(3rd person statements sound so official, love it)

She founded In Whirl of Inspiration, back in 2011 when she was (just) a biology student, in the island of Crete. In Whirl of Inspiration started as a creative and writing outlet for when studying molecules, became too monotonous. Recently, she started writing a children book and a not-so-children's book about the civil war in Greece. She has a soft spot for cheese, elder people, and (her own) jokes, but can't tell any as she ruins them by laughing too early. She enjoys sharing advice for eating healthier, or inspiring people to cover themshelves with plants, color and confetti.

Feel free to email her at, or find her on Instagram and Twitter. (breaking the 3rd person narration to thank you properly)

Thank you so much for reading!
